2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Large bubble carbonation. Nose of wet hop but not strong. Teases with mild fruit up front, followed by prolonged bitter. I’m a hop head, but this is just bitter. As it warms, a little more malt to balance.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Amex lounge DFW. Pours hazy amber with medium head. A weak nose of raisin and grape. Sudden, crisply bitter with malt and pine. Slightly watery palate and a long bitter finish. A bit of an odd bird with the maltiness but worth a try.

Tap at pizza vino in Dallas airport. Pour amber and head lasts for days. Smooth for style and sweetness covers hop bite and floral notes. A bit too sweet really. Ok but nothing to seek out. Wouldn't turn it down though.

Sampled at GABF 2015, In the tasting glass orange with some brown highlights. Nose of fruit and floral hops. Medium maybe body. Flavor is caramel malts, some citrus and floral hops, and some fruit Moderately bitter finish. Seems clearly a English IPA rather than a west coast one we see so much these days. Very nice drinking.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft. I like the color and head. Hop flavor is just ok. Lots and lots of malt up front. It’s not as bitter as a west coast ipa but it still has decent hop bitterness. It’s an ok IPA that I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy. If that’s all the IPA the bar has then it is good enough to drink more than one.

Bottle. Hazy Amber orange pour with a white soapy head. Sweet earthy malts with a hint of spice. Too malty for my tastes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at DFW. Hazy copper, firm pillowtop. Starts malt-forward, not unlike a Festbier. Then there’s the slightest of American hoppy twists. (#6060, 11/13/2015)

Hazy orange color with thin white head. Nice sweet malty aroma. Hoppy with a light malty flavor. Pretty good effort by R&S.
